Helps projects building Python/C++ extensions for Bob

Project description

This package provides a pkg-config bridge for Python/C++ extensions for Bob. You use this package by including it in the setup_requires field of your setup.py file.

Building with zc.buildout is possible using the develop recipe in xbob.buildout. Follow the instructions described on that package for this recipe.

Preparing for C++ Compilation

Creating C++/Python bindings should be trivial. Firstly, edit your setup.py so that you include the following:

from xbob.extension import Extension
...

setup(

  name="xbob.myext",
  version="1.0.0",
  ...

  setup_requires=[
      'xbob.extension',
      ],

  ...
  ext_modules=[
    Extension("xbob.myext._myext",
      [
        "xbob/myext/ext/file1.cpp",
        "xbob/myext/ext/file2.cpp",
        "xbob/myext/ext/main.cpp",
      ],
      pkgconfig = [ #bob modules you depend on
        'bob-math',
        'bob-sp',
        ],
      include_dirs = [ #optionally, include directories
        "xbob/myext/ext/headers/",
        ],
      ),
    ... #add more extensions if you wish
  ],

  ...
  )

These modifications will allow you to compile extensions that are linked against the named pkg-config modules. You can specify the modules of Bob you want to link against. You don’t have to specify bob-python, which is automatically added. Furthermore, you can specify any pkg-config module and that will be linked in (for example, opencv). Other modules and options can be set manually using the standard options for python extensions. To hook-in the building on the package through zc.buildout, add the following section to your buildout.cfg:

[xbob.myext]
recipe = xbob.buildout:develop

If you need to build multiple eggs, you will need one entry per project on your buildout.cfg. This includes, possibly, dependent projects. Currently, zc.buildout ignores the setup_requires entry on your setup.py file. The recipe above creates a new interpreter that hooks that package in and builds the project considering variables like prefixes into consideration.
